Most people would agree that we have a lot to be thankful for. If we were to really stop and think about it, you and I have a tremendous amount to be grateful for. Because most, if not all of us, live a lifestyle full of multiple conveniences. Yet at the same time, it is somewhat easy to forget how blessed we are. We can get consumed by what is not, and forget about all that is!
In this encounter that Jesus has with His disciples, we find Our Savior displaying how to maintain a grateful attitude in the midst of a shortage.
So in order to cultivate a grateful attitude, there are somethings we must do on purpose. We have to be conscious of what we have, while also remembering who has given to us all we possess. And finally, most grateful people are conscious of the needs of others.
While we celebrate Thanksgiving in the coming days, let us remember to not only be thankful during this season but to have a grateful attitude each and every day.
